Make Your Winter BIrthday Bash a Blast

Does your child have a winter birthday?  Don’t let the seasonal blues get you down. There are many activities and treats everyone can enjoy when it comes to having a winter birthday bash. 

Winter Birthday Party Ideas

If you are planning to host a winter birthday party, here are some fun, warm and inexpensive ways to celebrate the special day. 

Have a Sleepover

Let’s have a slumber party!  Remember those days?  Well, it is still a classic way for the kids to celebrate in style.  After the party games, have a special dinner in honor of the birthday boy or girl.  Then, get the kids involved in a ‘make your own dessert’ activity such as baking cookies, followed by a movie.  The hardest part is getting your young guests to go to sleep. However, if you put them in your finished basement, for instance, they can wear themselves out without disturbing you, and drift off to sleep.

Serve Up Brunch

A small, cozy brunch is sure to warm up hearts and the guests too.   This is a great way for the kids to bond and adults to socialize over yummy breakfast foods and treats.   Following the meal, play creative, competitive games outside. You can have prizes for the winners, and send everyone home with a goodie bag. 

Organize a Playdate

Host a small group playdate someplace fun. Invite just a few special friends and head to the local skating rink, a moonbounce facility, or another indoor play area to burn off energy.  A smaller group will keep the cost down too.

Party at Home

If you want to invite a lot of kids, throw a birthday bash at home. A DIY party featuring games, crafts and simple foods is still a very popular way to celebrate.  Ask a friend or hire another parent to help organize the kids and the games.

Find low-cost entertainment for the party.  Find someone who does hair tinsel or makes balloon animals, for instance, or a jewelry making artist who can make necklaces for a small fee per child.  Having outside entertainment can really make your birthday bash pop.

Kids Birthday Party Success Tips

There are some tried and true methods to ensure a winter birthday party is a hit with the kids.  Serve finger food like chicken fingers, pizza and tacos that kids are familiar with.  Pick a theme for the party and make sure it’s mirrored in the birthday cake.  Choose creative names for the food, too, and buy party favors and decorations that reflect your theme. The kids can get involved as well.  Let them make their own mini pizzas or decorate cupcakes or ice cream sundaes with the toppings of their choice.
